Reporter to Digvijaya Singh on alleged snooping on Gadfkari: "What have you to say?" Digvijaya, apparently somewhat lost: "Now that Minister himself has said there wasn't any snooping, there's no issue."Reporter: "Would you still insist on a probe?" Digvijaya Singh, after some thought:: "Yes, the duo from Gujarat have a reputation of snooping on innocents."  Now you know how news TV develops a story.

When a BJP spokesperson said political parties respond to "independent" and "strong media" which "shout" at mistakes, Shailesh Gandhi, ex-CIC said, "Arnab Goswami shouts every night and nothing happens". This was on Goswami's Newshour on Thursday debating Gujarat Governor Kamla Beniwal's abundant use of "private government planes". All the anchor did was smile away. That was a clever one, Gandhi!

P Sainath who broke Ashok Chavan's 'paid news' story   had reported "they were not marked as advertisements" in the newspapers. Now Chavan's lawyer, Kapil Sibal has told  the Delhi High Court "Chavan was not aware of these advertisements and the publishers have said they were published without his (Chavan's) knowledge". Isn't it time the Press Council of India acted against the newspapers?

The New York Times has suddenly seen fit to editorialise on the state of press freedom in India, cobbling together a variety of developments over the past twelve months and bunging in the question of transparency of media ownership as well. An edit based on Googling, if ever there was one.
